Mommy Needs A Timeout

I was talking on the phone last night with an amazing friend. We haven’t talked for a while so we were catching up on all the happenings in our lives over the last few months. She said something that really got me thinking. I need to put myself in a timeout.

Distance Learning Love It Or Hate It Set A Good Example

I myself have been vocal about distance learning and how much I wasn’t a fan. It wasn’t the worst thing to happen, but not something we were equipped for. If I wanted to teach my kids from home I would homeschool. I understand that it was the only option with what was happening and theContinue reading “Distance Learning Love It Or Hate It Set A Good Example”

I’m My Own Worst Critic And My Kids See That

I am my own worst critic. I am the most toxic person to myself. I know that I bring myself down and tear myself down about things. I’m not good at anything. Everything I try to do goes wrong. I should just stop trying to do anything. I know I say these things and doContinue reading “I’m My Own Worst Critic And My Kids See That”

It’s Okay To Cry

The older I get the more I cry. It’s almost as if it’s the only emotion my body allows these days. I’ll cry happy tears, sad tears, frustrated tears, angry tears, all the tears. I’m a tear making machine. Sometimes I hate it, but tears are just tears. A completely normal way to express yourContinue reading “It’s Okay To Cry”

I’m Not A Schedule Mom – Quarantine

All rules and everything we knew went out the window when quarantine started. I guess now we’re technically off quarantine, but things still aren’t back to normal and we have to wear masks everywhere we can’t maintain social distancing. The kids will be distance learning this year as well at least until November. I’m soContinue reading “I’m Not A Schedule Mom – Quarantine”

You Are Doing What’s Right, Stop Doubting That

Therefore we know what’s right for our children better than anyone. There will always be outsiders looking in judging your every move because that’s just whatContinue reading “You Are Doing What’s Right, Stop Doubting That”

Not Right Now

Life gets busy. We are always working, cleaning, cooking, going to school, running errands, or doing something around the house. After all we’re not just adults, but parents too. That means we have double the work. If we aren’t busy, we are trying to relax for a second if our lives allow it. Sometimes thatContinue reading “Not Right Now”

This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

You know the saying ‘this is why we can’t have nice things.’ It usually refers to kids, pets, or a spouse and something they’ve to ‘ruin’ something in some way. A chip, a break, a scratch, spilled paint, whatever happened. I used to say that all the time. The kids and I are the prettyContinue reading “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things”

To The Dads

Dads show love to their children so differently than moms do and it’s everything they need. Usually our focus is on mothers and women, but that isn’t meant to ever devalue the fathers of the world. Fathers are amazing people and they should be celebrated. So in honor of Father’s Day we want to celebrateContinue reading “To The Dads”
